Cultural Science: A Natural History of Stories, Demes, by John Hartley,Jason Potts

, , Comment Closed

By John Hartley,Jason Potts

Cultural technological know-how introduces a brand new mind set approximately tradition. Adopting an evolutionary and structures method, the authors argue that tradition is the population-wide resource of newness and innovation; it faces the long run, no longer the prior. Its leader attribute is the formation of teams or 'demes' (organised and efficient subpopulation; 'demos'). Demes are the capacity for growing, allotting and growing to be wisdom. even though, such teams are aggressive and knowledge-systems are hostile.

Starting from a rereading of Darwinian evolutionary conception, the ebook utilises multidisciplinary assets: Raymond Williams's 'culture is usual' process; evolutionary technological know-how (e.g. Mark Pagel and Herbert Gintis); semiotics (Yuri Lotman); and monetary conception (from Schumpeter to McCloskey).

Successive chapters argue that:

-Culture and data have to be understood from an externalist ('linked brains') viewpoint, instead of during the lens of person behaviour;

-Demes are created via tradition, specifically storytelling, which in flip constitutes either politics and economics;

-The conflict of platforms - together with demes - is effective of newness, meaningfulness and winning replica of tradition;

-Contemporary city tradition and citizenship can top be defined through investigating how tradition is used, and the way newness and innovation emerge from volatile and contested barriers among varied that means systems;

-The evolution of tradition is a means of technologically enabled 'demic focus' of information, throughout overlapping meaning-systems or semiospheres; a procedure the place the variety of demes obtainable to any person has elevated at an accelerating expense, leading to new difficulties of scale and coordination for cultural technology to handle.

The publication argues for interdisciplinary 'consilience', linking evolutionary and complexity conception within the common sciences, economics and anthropology within the social sciences, and cultural, verbal exchange and media reviews within the humanities and inventive arts. It describes what's wanted for a brand new 'modern synthesis' for the cultural sciences. It combines analytical and ancient equipment, to supply a framework for a common reconceptualisation of the idea of tradition – one who is targeted no longer on its political or normal features yet particularly its evolutionary value as a generator of newness and innovation.

Die "objektiven" Toten. Leichenfotografie als Spiegel des by Ina König

, , Comment Closed

By Ina König

Das Leben der Menschen wird durch den Tod begrenzt. Es wird oft darüber gesprochen und geschrieben, welche Konsequenzen dies für das Handeln des Einzelnen hat oder haben sollte. Dieses Wissen um den Tod bleibt für die Menschen meist abstrakt.

Wie steht es jedoch um die Konfrontation mit dem konkreten Toten? Auf der Leinwand fließt häufig Blut, das explizit gezeigt wird und nicht selten sterben Protagonisten. In dieser Richtung kann den geübten Zuschauer nur noch wenig schockieren. Doch wie sieht es mit den Bildern von realen Toten aus, von toten Menschen, die dem Betrachter im Leben nahe standen?

Viele Menschen finden den Gedanken, eine Fotografie von ihren toten Angehörigen zu machen befremdlich, wenn nicht sogar schockierend. Konfrontiert mit der Tatsache, dass es im 19. und frühen 20. Jahrhundert gängige Praxis conflict, eine letzte Fotografie von einem Toten zu machen und diese zum Beispiel an prominenter Stelle im Haus aufzustellen, lässt viele zuerst danach fragen, wann dieser Brauch ein Ende gefunden habe. Doch das Fotografieren der Toten dauert an. Es ist jedoch von einem sozial akzeptierten, offen praktizierten Brauch der Vielen zu einem persönlichen, quickly schon geheim gehaltenen Ritual der Wenigen geworden. Warum ist das so?v

Die Arbeit "Die 'objektiven' Toten" beleuchtet Vergangenheit und Vorgeschichte der Leichenfotografie und geht im zweiten Teil näher auf die Umstände ein, die zu einem veränderten Umgang mit dem Tod und den Toten - und damit auch mit der Totenfotografie - geführt haben.

Zuletzt wird jedoch ein neues Interesse am Thema Tod in den Medien konstatiert. In diesem Rahmen fallen auch Bilder bekannter Fotografen auf, die von Perspektive und Machart her an die Bilder aus dem 19. Jahrhundert erinnern. Schließt sich hier ein Kreis? Taucht ein lange in den Untergrund verdrängtes style wieder an die Oberfläche der Gesellschaft? Die Arbeit versucht im letzten Teil eine Antwort auf diese Frage zu geben.

"Die 'objektiven' Toten" zeichnet sich durch die Beschäftigung mit einem Thema aus, welches so detailliert von noch keinem anderen europäischen Forscher aufgegriffen wurde. Die wenigen Informationen, die es hin und wieder zu dem Thema gibt, wurden von der Autorin gesammelt und zu einem neuen landscape mit neuen Einblicken in Vergangenheit und Gegenwart der Menschen zusammengestellt.
